"Wedding Anniversary" Poem; Remember The Promise

Remember the promise
you made to each other
Remember the love
that holds you together
Remember the vows
that joined you as one
Remember each day
To make your life fun
Keep your hearts safe
hold each other tight
and remind each other
every day and each night
to never lose faith in
the strength of your love
Dream all your dreams
under the stars up above
And look to the future,
walking side by side
take each step with trust
Let love be your guide

Rosemary, "Remember the Promise" is a recipe for the enduring intimacy which is widely sought yet narrowly found. The poem's ingredients are blended to produce a nurturing relationship. I would recommend this poem to anyone considering a lifelong commitment. Great profile photo, very photogenic. Your poem rates a thumbs up for its simple, yet beautifully useful message!!! Regards, Robert

Good morning Robert. Enduring love is endeed a rare thing. So many let that love fade instead of nurturing it.

Thank you for your beautiful comments and for the thumbs up.
